HIGH STAKES - Live Professional Boxing
: On Saturday, November 23, Falls Boys Promotions (FBP) and Three Lions Promotions (TLP) present âHigh Stakesâ featuring hometown hero Lucas âPrinceâ Bahdi (5-0-0, 5KOs) in the main event at the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. With three national amateur titles to his credit, Bahdi is Niagaraâs most decorated amateur fighter since Billy âThe Kidâ Irwin thrilled fans leading up to the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. Since turning pro, Bahdi has set a torrid pace, fighting four times in under five months, recording a knockout in each and every appearance.
The card will also feature Canadian light middleweight champion Kevin Higson (17-2-0, 1KOs); Canadian amateur champion and freshly minted professional Carolyn Redmond (1-0-0, 1KOs); and fast-rising St. Catharines prospect Antonio Napolitano (4-0-0, 2KOs).
âThis will be my first main event as a professional. I want to make a statement here in my hometown,â said Bahdi. âIâm excited for FBP and TLP joint promotion here in Niagara. Having Higson, Napolitano, and Redmond on the card adds even more excitement to the event.â In his last outing, Bahdi scored his fourth sensational knockout, stopping Mexican veteran Laramie Corona (8-8-0, 3KOs) in the opening round at the Hamilton Convention Centre.
Robert Penev, Promoter of FBP, is keen to collaborate with TLP. âI have worked with Lucas since his first national championship win and we wanted to make sure his return to Niagara was with an industry leader like Three Lions Promotions. Lucas is the fastest rising star in Canada right now and I can guarantee he will be on the global radar in 2020.
Dan Otter, Managing Director of TLP, was equally enthusiastic about the collaboration. âWe are excited to team up with Rob and Falls Boys Promotions,â said Otter. âThey are young and full of excitement. They fit into our corporate culture very wellâ.
Full card to be announced in the coming weeks.
